<i>You can not see your reflection in running water, only in still water.</i>
We all need to sit still, to be still at times, to really observe ourselves and/or the world. Maybe even more important for anyone that photographs.To see with mindfulness, really pay attention, whether your subject is other people, nature or "lifeless" objects. That is when you might be capable of developing an intimacy with your subjects. And you no longer walk sightless among all the wonders all around you. No matter the amount of expensive equipment you might carry around with you to shoot with, if you are not attentive and walk through the world with mindfulness, you are not seeing and living, and you will miss moments and you will miss life.
